Ifeanyi Okowa, the Delta State Governor and vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has assured that the party is the only viable alternative to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The Governor expressed optimism that the PDP would win the 2023 presidential election with a wide margin, even in the South-East region where Labour Party, LP, candidate Peter Obi hails from.

According to Okowa, PDP will clinch Anambra State by a landslide, despite the State parading two presidential candidates in LB and All Progressives Grand Alliance.

Okowa disclosed these at the Uche Ekwunife Campaign Office, Awka, on Sunday, after attending a special church service to mark the 60th birthday anniversary of the Anglican Archbishop of Niger Province and Bishop of Awka Diocese, Rt. Rev. Alexander Ibezim.

The Delta State governor recounted that the South-East has missed out on key appointments for the past 12 years, promising that his party will correct the abnormally.

He said, “The PDP is not unmindful of the fact that Ndigbo have never had their fair share of appointments in the country over the past 12 years and I stand here to promise that Ndigbo will play a major role in our government as from 2023 and beyond.

“We are aware that Anambra has two presidential candidates for the 2023 election, but we are going to win, not just a landslide, but an impressive margin. We will also garner massive votes from the South-East in general and Anambra State in particular, inspite of the fact that the state is parading two presidential candidates of Labour Party and All Progressives Grand Alliance.”
